This is an easy dish to serve your family. Much like Chicken Fried Steak, the meat is dredged in eggs and then a flour mixture before frying. The creamy dill sauce is wonderful served over mashed potatoes or even asparagus.

Instructions for Making This Recipe

Ingredients for this Recipe

Gather all your ingredients so that you have everything close at hand on the counter or table.

Flour, Breadcrumbs, and Seasonings

In a shallow bowl, whisk together the large eggs and set aside. On a large plate, stir together the all-purpose flour, Italian breadcrumbs, seasoned salt, and freshly ground black pepper.

I like to use Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs for this recipe, but you may substitute plain breadcrumbs if desired.

In a large cast iron skillet, heat enough vegetable oil to cover the bottom of the pan.

Dredging Pork Tenderloin in Eggs and Flour

Dip tenderloins first in the egg mixture and then dredge in flour mixture, completely coating on both sides.

Frying the Pork Tenderloin

Cook in a hot skillet, frying on each side 7-10 minutes until golden brown. Transfer meat to a baking pan and cover with tinfoil. Keep warm in a 200 degree oven.

Ingredients for the Cream Dill Sauce

Gather the ingredients needed to make the cream dill sauce.

Heat 1/2 cup chicken broth in the same skillet, stirring in remains from the fried pork tenderloin.

In a small bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour and remaining broth until smooth. Pour into skillet and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook until thickened.

A Few Notes on This Recipe

You may use boneless pork chops or pork loin if you desire. I prefer to buy meat that has already been tenderized. If not, you’ll want to tenderize the meat yourself before using. To do that, sprinkle the meat on both sides with a meat tenderizer solution and then pound the chops with a metal meat hammer.

I like to use my cast iron skillet to cook the meat as it works well with a high temperature and will give the meat a nice crunchy coating.

The tangy cream sauce compliments the pork well with its vinegar and dill.

Be sure that all of your side dishes are ready before you make the cream sauce, as it cooks in minutes, and you’ll want to serve it warm before it sets up and congeals. 

If your sauce becomes too thick, simply add more milk to it and stir to combine until it becomes the desired consistency.
